What is a Felony? 

Not all crimes are created equal. The most serious crimes are classified as felonies. Less serious crimes are classified as misdemeanors. However, all crimes are serious from the perspective of the person charged. Both felonies and misdemeanors can result in jail time and heavy fines, but the penalties are harsher for felony charges. Felony charges are appropriate for more serious offenses. Felony offenses can often involve violence, a high level of theft, or sexual abuse of a minor. Felony offenses often generally result in jail time. If you have been charged with a felony, it is important to contact a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Your attorney will help make sure that you understand the charges against you, what the process ahead of you looks like, and how best to prepare for it. Your attorney will also develop a legal strategy to maximize your chances for success in court. 

Understanding Different Degrees of Felony Charges 

Even among felonies, there are different levels of severity when it comes to crime and punishment. There are six different categories of felonies. A felony may be classified as a category ranging from A to D. Class A felonies are the most serious, and Class D felonies are the least serious. The classification of the felony that you are charged with can have a huge impact on determining the nature of the penalties that you will face. 

A Class A felony, being the most serious, carries a potential penalty of 10 years in prison up to life in prison, as well as fines of up to $20,000. On the other hand, a Class D felony, being the last serious, may be punishable by up to five years in prison. As you can see, even the least serious felony carries severe penalties. For this reason, it is critical to avoid making the mistake of trusting the system, relying on an inexperienced attorney or just riding the process out. The criminal justice system is not designed to protect you; you have to protect yourself, and one way of doing that is by hiring a criminal defense attorney who will valiantly defend your rights. Our lawyers will fight to make sure your interests are advocated for and that your right to a fair trial is protected.

Do I Need a Lawyer for a Felony Charge? 

If anyone ever needed a lawyer, it would be when they are facing felony criminal charges. This is the exact situation that criminal defense attorneys exist to serve. Our lawyers are dedicated to protecting the rights and freedoms of all citizens, especially those who have been accused of serious crimes. Your lawyer will fight to get the charges against you dropped by thoroughly reviewing the facts and circumstances of your case for any indications of procedural errors or mishandling of evidence that could be grounds for dismissal in your case. Your lawyer may also work to negotiate a plea bargain with the prosecution that would allow you to avoid felony charges by pleading guilty or no-contest to a less serious misdemeanor charge. If your case goes to trial, your attorney will assert the best defense possible to maximize your chances of securing a not-guilty verdict.
